captions paid for by nbc-universal television hey, everybody. we're so glad you're with us today. it's thirst-day thursday september 6th. we're just barrelling along. >> we certainly are. >> how are you, miss hoda? >> i feel good. how are you? >> good. very good. >> we are going to begin our show with a kind of disgusting photo. >> but hodi wanted to. >> okay. there was a family dining at a restaurant in utah, okay? they brought their children, young ones. they were apparently being potty-trained while at the restaurant. take a look. it looked like a booster seat, but no indeed, it was a potty on the chair. the kids, according to whoever was snapping the photo, saw
these children being potty-trained at a restaurant. the restaurant is called thanksgiving point deli in utah. apparently a spokesperson for that restaurant told the local cbs affiliate they have received several complaints. quote, i think state and local health codes were probably at issue, as well as social norms. >> you think? identities of the mother and children are not being revealed. >> what is happening in that situation? what is going on there? >> she is very serious about potty-training her children. i don't know. i can't even imagine. >> what happens after that? then you hoist the potty and take it out? >> you see one of the waiters coming out with food and she is coming out with -- excuse me! what goes in must come out, hoda. >> that is nasty, that whole thing. >> i agree with you. but you wanted to start with it. >> because it's surprising. >> this is on the other end of the spectrum as a great story.
this couple was getting on the plane with their 14-week-old twins, i believe. their very first plane ride. >> it was from san francisco to d.c., a long flight. >> they decided to ease the tensions, because you know how everybody feels when you see somebody coming on with babies and all their stuff. what they did was passed out a note to every single person, apparently on the plane with a little bag of candy attached saying, "hello, we're twin baby boys on our first flight and we are only 14 weeks old. we'll try to be on our best behavior. but we would like to apologize in advance in case we lose our cool, get scared or our ears hurt." >> isn't that precious? >> passed them out to everyone on the plane. they also had a note that said if by chance the kids get out of control, we have ear plugs for everyone at our seat. >> yes. apparently they are still on vacation.
so now the return flight is coming so they are shopping right now. >> i can't believe they have time to make candy bags. >> who has time when you have twin newborns? >> she must be very organized. >> i've told you this story. when cody was going to be circumcised, on the eighth day of a little boy's life that happens, oftentimes. so i put a little note in his diaper for the doctor. the nurse came to take him away and the note said, "dear dr. langon, just take a tad and leave me most that i had. life is too short so don't make me that way. please hold steady and have a nice day." the doctor said he had never, ever found a note in the baby's diaper. i asked for the note. he said absolutely not, that's going up in my office. he had it framed and put up in his office.
so sometimes it helps to write little notes. >> that's very sweet. jessica simpson had a baby and has been struggling to take off the baby weight. it's interesting because a lot of women have a difficult time losing that baby weight. she has a deal with weight watchers and the baby weight is supposed to come off. some people are describing her as a breath of fresh air. often we see these celebs who have babies, a couple of weeks later their stomach is flat and they are at the gym and it's annoying. >> they shall remain nameless. gisele bundchen and victoria beckham. >> jessica said, i didn't realize the weight didn't all come off with the baby. >> does she really want to say that? if you gain 70 pounds, you're not going to have a 70-pound baby. i don't think she meant it that
way, right? >> no, probably not. she said i'm not a super model, my body is not bouncing back like a super model. i'm an everyday woman who is trying to feel good and healthy. she shed she wants to exercise, but she says her boobs, this is a quote, are too big to run. you have to get a double jog bra. >> you need a harness and a crane just to get into your sports bra. it's ridiculous. >> she did admit she ate a bunch of mac and cheese and ate pop-tarts with butter on them. which sounds delicious to me. >> you know, she's a sweetheart. i've met her a couple of times, and she's a sweetheart. but the people that lose the weight quickly are usually the people that exercise during their pregnancy and ate in a fashion that was not going to add that much weight. >> how long did it take to you lose baby weight?
>> i did not exercise at all with cody. i think about two months. with cassidy -- i gained 23 pounds with each baby. they were big babies. with cassidy i started to exercise during my pregnancy. i had to host the miss america pageant six weeks after she was born and had to get into a size whatever. >> you were crashing it. >> i was crashing it. >> this is cool video. it's adorable. everyone turned out okay in the end. there is a mother duck and ducklings trying to cross a major highway. four lanes of speeding traffic. a lot of close calls. here they are all following mom. you don't even want to watch, but you can. you can't go back now because you're already in the middle. there is no returning.
i think one is gone. >> they're okay. >> they're all okay. please go across the street. >> we heard an earlier report quite a few potential accidents were averted at the last second, but that turned out to not be true. this is nothing short of a little duck miracle. >> that is a lot of blowback. >> they got blown! >> what's on the other side there they were running to? what is over there? >> home. >> they made it. that was sweet. >> only for a biker -- never mind. >> stop. it was sort of a sad day at the u.s. open yesterday for andy roddick. >> he had announced he is going to retire. >> he is only 30. you weren't sure how long he was going to go. he played his last game at the u.s. open. he lost to a seventh seed. he was very emotional at the end and so was his wife brooklyn decker.
you can tell how much in love they are. >> it's an emotional bittersweet day, but at the end of the day he takes a shower and goes home to her. >> exactly. >> there's bad news and really good news. she's gorgeous. >> she's only 30. i wonder what you do after that when you're a tennis player and you retire? >> he's so adorable. maybe he goes into sports commentating. i have my own career. i can't help andy roddick. >> how is your show "scandalous" going? >> it is great. i'll tell you something when i have something to tell you. >> you're going to love this one. let me tell you what it's all about. it's all about the shoulders. just remember that. this guy's name is connor maynard. the song is called "vegas girl" and it's shoulders. go. please. ♪ this is for the girl that can
get down low ♪ the whole club wanna see you go ♪ ♪ hey shake shake like you're famous girl ♪ head back laid down like a vegas girl ♪ >> "vegas" and "famous" don't rhyme. ♪ head back laid down like a vegas girl ♪ >> you know what he's talking about. >> yes. isn't it awesome? connor maynard. he's like a kid. he's british. >> that's harry's theme song. >> when i hear a song, i have shazam on my iphone so i can download it. >> of course you do. do you have "everyone has a story" on there? >> no. >> because today is "everyone has a story." >> i was hoping! >> we've got an exciting contest. 1.5 million tweets? >> i can't believe how many college kids are grooving on this.
virginia tech is very highly represented. >> did we get any oral roberts university? >> we want to go back to college. so we are asking colleges and campuses to tweet their spirit on our twitter page. klg&hodau. send us pictures, videos. whoever is the winner at the end, we'll do our show from their school. isn't that going to be crazy? >> that sets education back about 100 years. >> sara, you had some tweets? >> we had good ones. >> how many schools did you hit at that time? >> i was already working at the age of 18. i was going to school at night, sara. some people actually struggled in life, okay? >> we did. we had over 1.5 million people see this in one day. you saw the numbers jump during the hour, so this is huge. we've got laura finley tweeted us.
"let's get hoda back to virginia tech for a hokey football game. klg, you are wearing eli's jersey on the show today, come experience where he went to college. you need to experience the number one college in tailgating campus beauty and student beauty, ole miss rebels. then there was a re-tweet, we agree. and north dakota state, three of your biggest fans are in thompson hall floor five. >> look at north dakota state. >> we had a couple more schools. creighton university, university of tennessee, west virginia. >> it's going to be fun. how long do they have? >> until september 17th. >> that's around the corner, people. >> it is. is it okay or not okay to bring babies to fancy restaurants? >> usually they tag them for us. but we're cutting back so we don't have a tag. >> you said as long as they bring along fancy manners there is no problem. >> that's right. hoda said it's okay, as long as you bring them for the early
when he's not hanging around the camp or tallying votes on "survivor," jeff probst will be hosting a talk show called "the jeff probst show." >> that's clever! >> it premieres on monday. >> it's funny, you do have discussions. should it be the probst show, the jeff probst show. >> the probster. >> you've been wanting to do this for a long time. >> i've been thinking about it
for a long time. really it shifted when i got married and my wife lisa brought these two amazing kids into my life. i have these kids calling me dad, and all of a sudden -- >> what a great-looking family. >> well, they come from good stock. >> you were just telling us earlier you met her at mark burnett's christmas party. the producer of -- >> "survivor". >> i was just out in malibu at their place. what a beautiful place to fall in love. >> he changed my life twice putting me on "survivor" and meeting my future wife at this christmas party. >> what topics are you going to tackle? >> i live my life pretty much from the philosophy that life is short at best. i want to get as much out of it as i can all the time. i also realized in daytime i have a short attention span. we built this show that will have three different stories every day off the top. that are connected by some sort of a theme. it could be on the nose, it could be stories about women
like you making huge impact in television, it could also be three stories connected by a word, bank, bank teller, bank robbery and a piggy bank. it's three interesting stories. >> that will make it a little different from some of the other talkers, right? your wife is going to be working for you. what is she going to be doing? >> lisa is on the show. she is the talent coordinator. we decided to put a camera up in her office so that whenever we are talking -- one of the segments we do is guys on the couch. i bring two guys up and we answer questions from women in the audience. about relationships and stuff. >> you stole that from our show, too. >> it's not a new idea here either. been around for a while. but yes. so look lisa will will pop in every so often. then we have another segment which is a nod to "survivor" which is ambush adventures. where we literally take somebody from the show, that born within the show that we find might have a problem or something they need to do and put them on the spot
to confront this thing live. it is the riskiest thing i've been a part of in that we start the show not knowing who we're going to pick to do it. we had a woman the other day that -- it's so funny. i am so self-conscious of time right now because for the last month i've been shooting shows. i, i want to look at the camera where you want to say, isn't this a great story? you get into a totally different mode. we had a woman at the end of the show. she asked a question about her relationship with her boyfriend. she said i think he broke up because i make more money and i'm not sure if that's the right thing. at the end of the show, the adventure is here's the deal. say yes before you know what the adventure is. >> what was the adventure? >> the adventure was, i've got a phone in my back pocket. we're going to call him right now. >> and ask him if it's the reason? >> i would hate that. >> no. it was beautiful. a, it was dramatic. because she calls him will. then he has to say yes to going
on the air. he says yes. then she asked him the question, do you love me because i love you and if we should be together, let's be together. why did you break up? there is this long pause and he says -- >> oh, i would be nauseous. >> he says i didn't trust myself. i thought i was going to cheat on you. so i broke up before i hurt you. then at the end of the show she says, i needed this. you were like a father figure to me. i don't have one, and i was killing myself waiting on this guy. now i know i'm free to meet somebody else. that happening is so fun in the moment. and it's always positive. >> well, that one worked out. if you had done that to hoedda woman -- >> it would not have been good. >> -- you would have not gone well. >> one big one right between the eyes. >> so much of television is so predictable. >> we wish you great luck on monday. >> thanks for having me on. thank you so much. >> and "the jeff probst show" starts monday. coming up, we've got one

♪ everyone has a moment ♪ that changes their life it is time for our newest "everyone has a story" contest winner. >> before we meet the couple, let's listen to the letter julian wrote us honoring this amazing lady. >> i want to tell this story about woman in my life, my wife jo draper grante. i'm an air force veteran who proudly served my country with two tours in vietnam. i was diagnosed with active hodgkin's lymphoma.
the cancer is a result of my exposure to agent orange while at vietnam. it moves through my body and can reappear at any time. my lovely wife jo has been my primary caregiver. she has sacrificed so much to take care of me. i don't have the adequate words to explain her unwavering love and devotion. over the years i've been in the hospital for critical care or many surgeries, jo has always been by my side. when i go to bed at night, she is beside me sleeping in a recliner. when i awake in the morning, she is there holding my hand. last year i was diagnosed with colon cancer. i was unable to care for my personal needs. without hesitation she would bathe me. it was a very humbling experience to have your wife take care of you like she was taking care of one of our six grandchildren. i'm so blessed to have a wife, a friend, a partner like jo, who is honest, compassionate, faithful and caring.
>> jo is here with julian who wrote the letter. it was easy to fall in love with the two of you. >> what a beautiful love story. >> thank you. >> we saw your wedding picture. everybody starts off on that day with such promise. the fairy tales are just not true. you don't live happily ever after. you go through a lot of stuff. you say this lady has been your strength, right, julian? >> absolutely. that and our faith in the gospel of jesus christ which kept us going. >> sometimes it's not easy to take help. i know because you're a strong guy, you've been through the wars and now you're very dependent on your wife. how difficult was that? >> it's been very humbling. the first morning i woke up after having my colon removed, and i was dealing with two cancers at one time, colon
cancer and hodgkin's lymphoma. i couldn't get out of bed and she said, i'll take care of you. i looked down and i had on a depends. it was like, oh, my god, this can't be happening to me. right away she went into action started taking care of me. >> that's real love. that's unconditional love. that's not what we see in the movies so much. >> how is it from your perspective, jo? >> well, julian is very easy to love. but christ has given us the strength to do this. we took wedding vows that said for richer and poorer, better and worse, sickness and health, and we've been through all of that. >> that's right. >> full measure. >> yes. but it's been an incredible life with him. we believe that we are going to have lots more of that, life to the full, because god has made
us promises and he has kept so many promises for us. our faith is just increased tremendously because of the promises he made and shown us in real life miracles that happen right before our eyes. things that we were in situations where we never thought we would be. and there were no answers but miracles through christ happens. it's just been amazing. >> you guys are such an example for your kids as well. i can only imagine. we have something fun coming up for you. >> david friedman and i have written you a song all because of that beautiful letter you wrote us. >> thank you. >> and we have this very, very handsome michael park who is going to sing it for you. we'll be right back.
